Brett Keisel Suffers Possible MCL Injury In Steelers Season Finale Win Over Browns

The Pittsburgh Steelers wrapped up their 2012 season on Sunday with a 24-10 win over the Cleveland Browns to finish the year at a disappointing 8-8.

The team did not get out of the game injury free, however, as head coach Mike Tomlin said during his post game press conference that defensive end Brett Keisel (knee) may have suffered an MCL injury of sorts and that they are getting that examined.

Cornerback Keenan Lewis (knee) re-injured his knee during the game and is getting that examined as well. Tackle Kelvin Beachum (concussion) suffered a concussion on the blind-side hit from Browns defensive tackle Phil Taylor and guard David DeCastro (stinger) suffered a stinger. All four players never returned to the game.

Tomlin will hold his end of the year press conference on Monday and may reveal more about the injuries.

    This is exactly what I was afraid of.. They could have easily played more Heyward and even play Al Woods some.They BOTH could use the reps more than Keisel. Obviously he has time to heal up, but what if its an ACL or something serious? Troy played great, but he shouldnt have been out there the entire game either

    The injuries never stopped this year, just like the year before. I think it’s pretty likely injuries are going to continue to plague this team until the team begins to play regularly with the physicality that they used to be a hallmark.
